House of the Week: $2.8 million to live in a contemporary Rosedale home with a traditional look

Address: 6 Rachael Street
Neighbourhood: Rosedale-Moore Park
Agent: Iwona Paluszkiewicz, Right At Home Realty Inc., Brokerage
Price: $2,795,000

The Place: A spacious four-bedroom home with a contemporary interior, tucked away on a quiet dead end street in Rosedale.

Bragging Rights: Though the inside is newly renovated, the exterior retains a traditional look that fits in nicely with the rest of the neighbourhood.

Big Selling Point: This home is walking distance to Bloor Street, Branksome Hall and some of the city’s prettiest running trails.

Possible Deal Breaker: The backyard is on the small side, leaving only enough room enough for a deck and a firepit. Even so, the house’s ample interior—up to and including its third-floor playroom and balcony—provides plenty of lounging space.
